Genesis 26:26

Abimelech went to him - When a man' s ways please God, he makes even his enemies to be at peace with him; so Isaac experienced on this occasion. Whether this was the same Abimelech and Phichol mentioned Genesis 21:22, we cannot tell, it is possible both might have been now alive, provided we suppose them young in the days of Abraham; but it is more likely that Abimelech was a general name of the Gerarite kings, and that Phichol was a name of office.

Ahuzzath - The Targum translates this word a company, not considering it as a proper name: "Abimelech and Phichol came with a company of their friends." The Septuagint calls him ̔ , Ochozath, the paranymph, he who conducts the bride to the bridegroom' s house. Could we depend on the correctness of this version, we might draw the following curious conclusions from it:

1.That this was the son of that Abimelech the friend of Abraham.

2.That he had been lately married, and on this journey brings with him his confidential friend, to whom he had lately entrusted the care of his spouse.
